1 mic, 5 minutes, 300 peers in the audience… no pressure, right?
What is Ignite TAO: Bend?
Ignite is a high-energy evening of 5-minute talks by local people who have a burning idea and the guts to get onstage and share their personal and professional passions. Quick, fun, thought-provoking, social, local, and global – Ignite is all of these and more.
Ignite TAO: Bend will focus on topics around all kinds of tech. What new products, services or research can really take technology to the next level? Speakers are from the local Bend community with representatives across many verticals – we want to hear from you!
Ignite TAO: Bend draws a diverse crowd of practitioners, researchers, administrators, entrepreneurs, consultants and business professionals. The promise of new ideas and exciting solutions to difficult problems brings everyone together.
